Who is Luke?

Hi, I’m Luke and I’m an English Language teacher from London.

I’ve been teaching  English for over 13 years. I started in Japan and lived in Kanagawa prefecture for two years. Then I moved back to London and taught English there for 9 years before moving to Paris where I now live, work and record episodes of the podcast.

I have experience of teaching courses in business English, academic English, legal English, general English and English for exam courses like FCE, IELTS and BEC. I’ve been doing Luke’s English Podcast for about four and a half years now.

I graduated from Liverpool John Moore’s University in 1999 with a BA Hons degree in Media and Cultural Studies. I worked at various media production companies before going into English language teaching. I took my CELTA in 2001 and then my Higher Diploma in English Language Teaching to Adults (DELTA) in 2006 at UCL. I now teach English at university in Paris, while working on other projects including Luke’s English Podcast.

I write a lot of ELT materials, and I develop a lot of courses in business English and EAP. I have written original courses for English for the Pharmaceutical Industry, English for the Oil and Gas Industries and English for Journalists, as well as communication skills workshops in presentations, meetings and negotiations. I am a semi-published author with some of my work being used in materials publications in several countries.

I started Luke’s English Podcast in 2009 and since then it has become enormously popular. I plan to continue writing material and publishing episodes of the podcast before hopefully publishing material of my own and expanding my website.

I am also a stand-up comedian, which means that I like to stand up in front of audiences of people, and make them laugh. This is both incredibly fun, and very nerve-wracking, and I love it. I also love playing drums, bass or guitar in bands. Seriously, I just love jamming in music, in comedy and on the podcast. Join me!

  1. Hello. I’d been in search of suitable and easy way to learn and later on, to be used to teach English in town when l found this website. Just perfect podcast l can tell. It really is the one l want and have been looking for. Very relaxing and yet amusing way to learn ”real spoken English”. I bet you’re now admired so much more than superman. you’re a superbLuke indeed.
    I love it when l hear you rambling, it really makes me feel that l m not alone. Thus l can say, you not only teach us what we need to learn, but calm (me) down from being a rambling phobic.
    What l ve done here?? Well, looks like l ‘ll need another memory card to download the remaining episodes and things here. just everything..every single thing.. even the microscopic one… just don’t want to miss anything…….not even the dust in your studio…
